ACKNOWLEDGMENT 

The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The 
county and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of 
State Markets, Florida Department of Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, Univer- 
sity of Florida's Cooperative Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area 
and county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, 
Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Com Ex- 
change, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and transportation firms 
provided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic data 
used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individ- 
uals and groups is appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B. Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
North Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, 
production and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the 
direction of Harvey L. Batchelor, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop 
and Livestock Reporting Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS — During the growing sea- 
son estimates were prepared for most crops on a calendar 
quarter to indicate available supplies for shorter periods 
of time than the entire crop year. The Fall, Winter, 
Spring quarterly estimates are combined into a crop year 
total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is shown 
by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been plantedfor harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same quarter, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested and planted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the acreage production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable qual- 
ity but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors; or if harvested, was not 
sold or utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acreage 
and production lost because of economic reasons are dif- 
ficult to define andmeasure, and are notattempted unless 
such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received on an f.o.b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 
Included are packing charges, selling charges, precooling 
top ice, or other costs which contribute to the value of the 
product at shipping point. The value per unit for quantities 
sold to processors is the average value paid for usuable 



quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. This 
value includes transportation and other normal costs in- 
cident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullageand 
other quantities not sold or utilized becaused of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result 
in the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop, unless 
specified. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num- 
ber of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL)— Loadings b y stations a r e 
pro-rated by commodities, using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
car lots on the basis or predetermined load factors. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT — The offical 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most common- 
ly used containers. If changes in container weights are 
necessary, all data pertaining to the production of the 
commodity in question is revised to maintain compara- 
bility between years. The table below gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per 
hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1976-77 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida grown vegetables, mel- 
ons , potatoes and strawberries sold totaled a record $560. 9 
million, up $36.5 million from the 1975-76 crop year. Al- 
though value increased from the previous season, acreage 
harvested decreased 5 percent. Crops showing the greatest 
declines in harvested acres were snap beans, sweet corn, 
eggplant and tomatoes. Crops increasing in value were 
cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, escarole, lettuce, pota- 
toes, radishes, "other vegetables," watermelons, and 
strawberries. Crops with lower values than the previous 
year were snapbeans, celery, sweet corn, green peppers, 
squash, and tomatoes. Production was less, especially 
for some crops because of the major freeze last January 
18-20 which destroyed much of the winter crop for some 
commodities. Prices were higher after the freeze for 
most commodities and this gave an overall increase in 
value. Cabbage, which rose almost $29 million, showed 
the greatest increase in value, followed by "other vege- 
tables" and cucumbers which increased $13.9 million and 
$3.9 million, respectively. 



Average yields for snap beans, sweet corn, egg- 
plant, potatoes, squash, and "other vegetables, " increased 
during the year but yields declined slightly for cabbage, 
celery, cucumbers, escarole, lettuce, green peppers, 
radishes, tomatoes, watermelons, and strawberries. 
Improved varieties, cultural practices and weather con- 
ditions can affect crop yields considerably. 



Season average prices of snap beans, cabbage, 
sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant, escarole, lettuce, 
green peppers, potatoes, and watermelons were higher 
thanayear earlier. Season average prices for radishes, 
squash, and strawberries were below a year ago. 

Land preparation, planting and transplanting were 
very active in most areas during August. Conditions were 
generally favorable over most of the farming areas during 
September. Shower activity increased, alleviating the 
need for irrigation in many areas. Temperatures moder- 
ated in October. Some areas reported locally heavy rain- 
fall. Temperatures were generally cool during November. 
Strong, gusty winds caused light leaf burn to tender plants 
in some areas. Harvest gained momentum during October 
and November. 



night, freezing temperatures in the low 20's occurred in 
most areas as far south as Dade County. Mosttender crops 
experienced a complete loss. Salvage harvest of mature 
fruit began immediately. Growers were busily assessing 
damage to their fields. Some fields were mowed off to 
sucker out while others were reseeded and transplanted. 



Temperatures moderated in the farming areas in 
February. Rainfall was generally light and scattered. 
Acreage planted after the freeze progressed favorably, 
and the condition of crops surviving the freeze improved. 
Light frost occurred in some outlying areas in late Feb- 
ruary. 



A cold front moved into the farming areas in early 
March. Light frost occurred in some west central areas. 
Damage was generally light. Temperatures began to in- 
crease about midmonth, and rose to several degrees 
above normal in most of the growing areas. Crop condi- 
tions improved and plant growth was very rapid. 



During April, daytime temperatures were generally 
warm and nights cool. Rainfall was limited to a few light, 
widely scattered showers. Crop conditions were variable, 
ranging from fair to excellent. Harvest was in full swing 
for some crops while others were declining seasonally. 



Conditions were warm and dry during much of May. 
Rainfall was sufficient enough to relieve shortages the 
firsthalf of the month. Crops were generally in good con- 
dition in most areas. Harvest was very active for some 
while declining on others. In late May, irrigation was 
heavy as conditions became very dry. 



In June, moderate to heavy thundershowers occurr- 
ed almost daily in some southern farming areas. Excess 
moisture caused some slight problems and delayed har- 
vest. Temperatures were normal to above normal. Crops 
were generally fair to good in most areas. 



Cooler, wet weather prevailed over most farming 
areas during December. There was some light to moderate 
cold damage to tender crops. A severe cold front invaded 
the farming areas on Tuesday, January 18. By Thursday 



Most of the weather data for this summary was sup- 
plied through the National Weather Service, U. S. Depart- 
ment of Commerce, Ruskin, Florida. Information on 
affects of weather on crops was provided by Florida Crop 
and Livestock Reporting Service field men. 



2 



SNAP BEANS 
1976-77 



Florida growers produced 3.7 million bushols of 
bush and pole beans during the 1976-77 season. Acreage 
harvested during the season totaled 29,500 acres, clown 
21 percent from the 37,500 acres harvested during the 
previous season. The decrease is due to the freeze 
January 18-20, 1977, which destroyed much of the winter 
crop. The average yield for the entire season was 125 
bushels per acre, as compared with 119 bushels per acre 
the previous year. The slight increase in yield was not 
enough to offset the decrease in harvested acres. 

The average f. o.b. price of $6. 29 per bushel was 
55 cents more than the previous year and reached an all 
time record high. Total value, at $23. 1 million, was 9 
percent below last year. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with 
the exception of the east central and southwest areas. The 
southeast continues to be the major producing area. Pole 
beans are produced primarily in Dade County, with small 
acreage grown in Gadsden County and the west central 
areas. 

Earliest supplies of snap beans beginning with the 
fall season come from West Florida. The north and west 
central areas, the Everglades and southeastern districts 



also provide fall production. The southeast is the sole 
source of supply during the winter. The other areas re- 
sume production in the spring. 

The fall crop peaked in late November and early 
December. The winter crop was virtually destroyed by 
the January 18-20 freeze. Acreage loss was as high as 
80-85 percent and production down 90-95 percent in some 
areas. Harvest was underway again in mid to late March. 
Production increased until the spring peak in April. Thirty 
one percent of the marketings took place in April compar- 
ed with 17 percent in April the year before. The season 
was over by mid June. 

Variable weather influenced last year's bean 
crop. Heavy rains late September in the Pompano area 
washed beds, necessitating moderate to heavy reseeding. 
Soil was packed resulting in slow germination and reduced 
stands in some fields. During the winter season, the en- 
tire crop was virtually lost due to the devastating freeze. 
As much of the crop as possible was salvaged. Weather 
during the spring season was generally favorable. Cool, 
brisk winds at times caused light scarring to pin beans 
and leaf bum. Quality and yields were mostly good to 
very good for the spring season. 



CABBAGE 
1976-77 



Cabbage production in Florida totaled 7.4 million 
sacks and crates during the 1976-77 season. The gross 
value was a record $48. 2 million, second only to tomatoes. 
This was nearly 85 percent more than the previous record 
of $26. 1 million received for the 1974-75 crop. The aver- 
age f. o.b. price of $6.45 per sack and crate was almost 
three times the average price of $2.32 received for the 
1975-76 crop and more than twice the previous record of 
$3. 09 set during the 1972-73 season. The price peaked in 
February when it averaged $9.45 per sack or crate and 
compares with the previous February high of $2.90 re- 
ceived in 1973. The record price and value is attributed 
to the reduced winter and spring crops caused by the sub- 
freezing temperatures on the morning of January 18. 
Cabbage was in short supply throughout the nation for the 
remainder of the 1976-77 season. 



Plantings during the season totaled 17,100 acres, 
six percent less than the previous season. Acreage har- 
vested totaled 16,300 acres, down 5 percent from a year 
earlier. The average yield, at 453 sacks and crates, per 
acre, was lower than last year. The low yield was caus- 
ed by the January freeze damage to mature and young 
cabbage. Young cabbage failed to size properly and heads 
were smaller than usual. This situation continued through 
the remainder of the season. 



Cabbage was available for market from November 
through June. Sales were about normal for the fall period, 
but were well below normal during January and February, 
reflecting the damage caused by the freeze. Volume sold 
in March and April was near normal but increased in May 
and June. The peak month continued to be March but was 
nine percent lower than March the year before. 

The Hastings area, which includes Flagler, Put- 
nam and St. Johns counties, continues to be the major 
producing area accounting for 52 percent of the state's 
total production, down slightly from a year ago. The 
north central, which includes Lake, Orange, Seminole and 
Volusia counties, was second in production accounting for 
23 percent of the total. Yields were lower than last sea- 
son in the Hastings and southern areas but unchanged In 
the central areas. 

Early transplanting and direct seeding were under- 
way by late August and early September. Transplanting 
was most active from October through January. Some 
acreage was lost in January and had to be replanted. 

First cuttings were made in early November. 
Harvest increased rapidly until slowed by the January 
freeze and did not return to normal until March. Volume 
was heavy through the remainder of the season.

CARROTS 
1976-77 



Production of carrots in Florida made rapid gains 
during the year. There were 1, 970 car lot equivalents of 
fresh and processing carrots shipped out-of-state last 
season. This compares with 1,311 shipped outduring the 
previous season. Shipments for the fresh market made 
up 81 percent of the total shipped out-of-state. Carrots 
are not part of the regular estimates program, therefore, 
data on acreage and production are not published. 

The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near Zell- 
wood and the Everglades, provide a good medium for 
growth. The mini or finger carrot harvest usually begins 



in late October and is complete by the end of May. Reg- 
ular-sized carrots are harvested from November through 
June. The peak harvest period last season was January 
through May. 

The major freeze of January 18-20 last season de- 
stroyed considerable y oung acreage, and tops of older 
crops were damaged. With the exception of the freeze, 
growing conditions for the season were generally favorable. 
Quality was good throughout the season. However , average 
size was somewhat smaller than normal, especially in 
February £>nd March after the freeze. 



CELERY 
1976-77 



Florida celery marketings of 5. 8 million crates 
were harvested from 10,100 acres during the 1976-77 
growing season. The average yield of 578 crates per acre 
compares with 687 crates for the previous year. 

Prices were improved over the previous season. 
Celery averaged S6.70f. o.b. per crate compared with 
S6.14 in the 1975-76 season. Prices averaged below a 
year earlier for the fall quarter but were above year 
earlier levels for the winter and spring quarters. The 
crop was valued at S39. 1 million, a decline of 5 percent 
from the previous season. 

The Everglades, with 85 percent of the harvested 
acreage, was the foremost area of production through the 
season. The north central area, supplemented by light 
volume from the Sarasota area, accounted for the remain- 
ing 15 percent of acreage and provided continuing supplies 
throughout the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding was underway 
by early June. Transplanting became active in the Ever- 
glades and Zellwood around mid-August and gained momen- 
tum as the season progressed. Planting in the Everglades 
continued through late March, while some acreage in the 



north central district was still being seeded in late April. 
Growers in Sarasota planted mostly from October to March. 

Light harvest began in late October. Growing con- 
ditions were hot and humid in early fall. The crop made 
good growth. The major freeze in January caused some 
damage and slowed growth. Yields were reduced by heavy 
stripping caused by cold and leaf miners. However, in 
the late winter and spring, size and quality improved. 
The market improved during the winter and early spring 
and trading was active. By late spring the market was 
weakened and prices dropped. Approximately 6 percent 
of the crop was passed or not harvested for various rea- 
sons. This was slightly below the normal abandonment. 
Growers passed some acreage in order to maintain good 
quality. 

Celerj T production was most active De c ember 
through May. Cutting declined seasonally in May and June 
and was completed by July 1 in all areas. 

Celery is subject to a federal marketing order ad- 
ministered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their 
field supervisors provide acreage and production data. 
In cooperation with the Committee, these data are as- 
sembled into weekly and monthly reports. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1976-77 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily at Zellwood 
and in the muckl and of the Everglades. Harvest was under- 
way by earl y November* Volume was light through Novem- 
ber but increased to a good level in December and January. 
Production peaked in March and April. Goi id sup] (lies were 
available from December through April. During April, 
Zellwood was providing good volume while production in 



the Everglades was declining seasonally. The season was 
over by late May. 

Yields and quality held up well during most of the 
season. The crop did not suffer significantly from cold 
weather or disease problems. Shipments for the season 
totaled 498 carlot equivalents, up from 461 carlots the 
previous season.

SWEET CORN 
1976-77 



Florida, the nation's leading sweet corn producer 
for the fresh market, marketed almost 12 million crates 
during the 1976-77 season. Production decreased 9 per- 
cent from the previous year. Growers harvested 50,300 
acres, down 12 percent from the 57,400 acres harvested 
during the 1975-76 season. The freeze January 18-20 
destroyed much of the winter crop. Yields averaged 238 
crates per acre statewide compared with 231 crates a year 
earlier. Yields have averaged above 200 crates per acre 
for every year since the record 244 crate average in the 
1972-73 crop year. 

The season average f . o. b. price of $3. 68 per crate 
was 4 cents above the average for the previous year. The 
total value of the crop was $44.1 million, down $4.1 mil- 
lion from the $48. 2 million received for the 1975-76 crop. 
The value of sweet corn ranked third in the state in vege- 
table crops and was exceeded by only the values of cabbage, 
and tomatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades in July. Seeding on the East Coast got under- 
way in late September and increased rapidly. Plantings 
were interrupted by rains in early to mid November in the 
East Coast area. Below normal temperatures slowed plant 
growth. First harvest began in the Everglades in the 
weekended September 27th and reached a fall peak in late 



October. The declining harvest in the Everglades during 
December was partially offset by the lower East Coast and 
Dade County. 

Harvest of the spring crop in the Everglades was 
underway by early April. The Everglades became the 
main source of supply in late April as the East Coast and 
Dade County phased out. The transition of harvest from 
the Everglades to Zellwood occurred in mid-May. Zell- 
wood increased to full supply by late May. Lake County 
provided a good volume in June. The season was complete 
in early July. 

Small acreage provided supplemental supplies at 
Zellwood and the west central area during the early fall, 
and at Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the fall growing season was gener- 
ally favorable. The freeze damage January 18-20 was 
light to mode rate in the Everglades but almost a complete 
loss of older corn occurred in the East Coast and Dade 
County areas. However, a few growers were able to sal- 
vage small quantities of mature corn in all growing areas. 
Frost caused some foliage burn to early plantings during 
late February and early March. The growing season was 
mostly favorable in the Zellwood and Everglades areas 
during the spring. 



CUCUMBERS 
1976-77 



Florida production of fresh market cucumbers 
during the 1976-77 crop year totaled 3. 8 million bushels, 
down 12 percent from the 1975-76 crop. The 16,100 acres 
planted was up 100 acres from the previous year and con- 
tinued the upward trend started two years ago. Harvested 
acres totaled 15,000 compared with 15,400 harvested a 
year earlier. Average yield per acre, at 253 bushels, 
was down 29 bushels from the previous year. Total pro- 
duction was valued at $19.7 million compared with $15.8 
million for the previous year. The f. o.b. price for 1976- 
77 averaged $5. 19 per bushel, up considerably from $3.64 
received for the previous year's crop. 

Supplies in 1976-77 were generally available from 
September through June. However, February supplies 
were destroyed by the January 18-20 freeze and movement 
in March was very light. Much of the recorded shipments 
moving out-of-state January through March are from off- 
shore and truck imports resold in mixed loads. 



The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the state. The southwest area, with 45 percent of 
the planted acreage during 1976-77, is the largest area. 
The west central area accounted for 27 percent of the 
planted acres in the state. The areas in the west, north 
central and southeast provided the remaining crop. 

Weather during much of the growing season was 
mostly favorable. Rains caused only minor problems on 
young acreage during early fall. In early to mid Novem- 
ber, strong, cool winds and frost caused light to moderate 
burn to tender foliage. Below normal temperatures slowed 
plant growth. The January 18-20 freeze destroyed all 
young plants out of the ground and the small acreage com- 
ing into production for winter harvest. Conditions for the 
spring crop were mostly good. Very good yields were 
obtained. Size, quality and color were very good most of 
the season.

EGGPLANT 
1976-77 



Plantings of 2, 250 acres were 6 percent below the 
1975-76 season. Yields averaged 701 bushels per acre, 
13 bushels above the previous season and an all-time re- 
cord high. Weather was generally very favorable during 
much of the growing season with the exception of the winter 
season. However, during late October and early November, 
strong, gusty winds knocked plants over, broke limbs in 
some fields and caused some scarring of small fruit. This 
damaged fruit resulted in reduced packout. The January 
18-20 freeze destroyed 85-90 percent of the standing 
acreage in some areas and the entire crop mother areas. 
Growers salvaged as much mature fruit as possible. Light 
harvest was underway again by late April. Yields, quality, 
fruit color and packout were very good for the spring sea- 
son. 

Production of eggplant decreased to 1.4 million 
bushels , . 2 million bushels below the record production 
last year . Total volume sold increased to §5. 3 million com- 
pared with $4. 8 million a year earlier. The increase was 
due to the higher season average price of $3. 90 per bushel 
compared with $3.06 a year ago. The fall, winter and 
spring crops averaged much higher in price than a year 
earlier. 



The distribution of marketings was generally nor- 
mal with exception of the winter season. Harvest began in 
October, reached a peak in November, and was virtually 
curtailed in late January. Harvest began again in late 
April and reached a peak in May. Harvest was virtually 
complete by early July. The southeast area around Pom- 
pano continued to dominate with 60 percent of the harvested 
acreage. The northern and central areas combined con- 
tributed 30 percent of acreage harvested with the remaining 
small acreage in the southwest. 

Production is generally continuous through the en- 
tire crop year in the southeast and southwest, while the 
crops in western, northern and central areas are for fall 
and spring harvest only. Those areas received too much 
freezingweather to grow eggplant during the winter monthSo 



First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern growing areas in early October . Harvest followed 
the usual pattern and progressed southward in the fall, 
continued through the winter in southern areas until the 
freeze, and then moved back northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1976-77 



Production of escsrole and endive during the 1976- 
77 season totaled 3.1 million crates, unchanged from a 
year ago. The 6,000 acres harvested was up 200 acres 
from the previous season. Yield per acre averaged 513 
crates compared with 532 crates the previous year. Prices 
during the season averaged $4.07 per crate, compared 
with $3.19 a year earlier. The total value of sales, at 
$12.5 million, was 26 percent above the previous year and 
a new record high. 

The Everglades, which had 72 percent of the har- 
vested acreage in the 1976-77 season, began seeding in 
early September. Weekly planting schedules continued 
through early April. Light harvest began in late October 
and supplies were continuous through May. Themucklands 
around Zellwood provided good volume in the late spring 



months . Smaller acreage grown on Lake Placid and Sara- 
sota mucklands also furnished supplemental supplies dur- 
ing much of the season. 

Sales started relatively slow 7 in October but increas - 
ed considerably to a good volume by November. Marketings 
reached peak levels in March. Good volume continued into 
May„ Harvest declined seasonally and was over by June 1. 

Growing conditions were generally favorable during 
most of the season. Winds caused some blowing soil prob- 
lems in early January. The freeze damage January 18-20 
was mostly light to moderate. Young plants were hit hard. 
Damage on older plants was confined to outside leaves. 
Quality of escarole and endive was mostly good throughout 
the season. 



(i 



LETTUCE 
1976-77 



Florida lettuce growers produced 1. 4 million 
hundredweight during the 1976-77 season. This was 3 
percent below the record high production of the previous 
season. A 19 percent increase in harvested acreage was 
more than offset by a reduction of 33 hundredweight per 
acre. Average yield, at 151 cwt. per acre compares with 
the 184 average for the previous season. The season 
average f. o. b. price of $12.34 per cwt. was $1.99 above 
the previous season. Prices for the fall and winter crops 
were higher than a year earlier while spring prices aver- 
aged lower. 

Acreage, production, and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single 
estimate. These types include the predominant iceberg 
and romaine as well as Boston, bibb and leaf types. The 
Everglades muckland accounted for 82 percent of the plant- 
ed acreage and was the source of a continuous supply which 
began in late October and ended in late May. Outside the 
Everglades, Zellwood is the other major producing area, 
with Sarasota and the Lake Placid mucklands contributing 
light supplies during much of the season. 



Seeding was underway by early September. All 
areas were actively planting by the end of the month. The 
Everglades and Sarasota areas had continuous plantings 
through March. Supplies peaked in March and April and 
then declined seasonally until harvest was completed in 
late May. Supplies from the Zellwood area are generally 
light during the winter months. Moderate supplies are 
available from this area in the fall and spring. 

Harvest was underway by late October with light 
supplies through November. Volume of all types increas- 
ed in December with growers cutting in most areas. The 
Everglades provided the bulk of the volume during the 
winter period. Production was over in all areas by June 1. 

Growing conditions during the early fall were hot 
andhumid. Growth was generally good. The major freeze 
in January killed some young crops, and outside leaves of 
older crops were damaged. Some stripping was neces- 
sary. Some speciality types were destroyed. Supplies 
gained during March. Quality was mostly good. 



PEPPERS 
1976-77 



Duringthe 1976-77 season, Florida produced 6.7 
million bushels of peppers from 16, 800 acres. The aver- 
age yield of 400 bushels per acre was 12 percent below 
the 454 bushels the previous year. The January freeze 
was the major contributor to the lower yield. Production 
was 7 percent below the previous year. 

The season average f . o. b. price was up from $5. 45 
per bushel the previous year to $5.66 per bushel last sea- 
son. The total value of $33.1 million was 3 percent below 
the previous year. Prices were especially good during 
the winter period but production was reduced by the Jan- 
uary freeze. Marketings were light in October but in- 
creased to a good level by December. The freeze then 
reduced supplies until the spring crop began in April. 
The peak production occurred in May. The season then 
declined and was mostly over by the end of June. The 26 



percent increase in total planted acreage was the result 
of a 30 percent gain in the heavy producing southwest area, 
a 53 percent increase in the west central area and a 50 
percent increase in the southeast. The north and north 
central areas declined. The southwest accounted for 60 
percent of the State's total pepper acreage. The south- 
east had 18 percent; the north central area, 9 percent; 
the north, 7 percent; and the west central area, 6 percent. 

Heavy rains during late September and early Oct- 
ober leached fertilizer and caused some problems. Spot 
resetting was necessary in some fields. Fields with 
plastic generally came through in better condition. The 
crop suffered heavy loss from the January 18-20 freeze. 
Supplies were greatly reduced until the spring crop began 
in April. Growing conditions were generally good during 
the spring period. Yields were very good.

POTATOES 
1976-77 



Production of potatoes in 1977, including both the 
winter and spring seasons, totaled 6.2 million hundred- 
weight, about one percent less than in 1976. A total of 
30,500 acres were planted, compared with 31, 900 acres 
planted the year before. Of this total, 30,100 acres were 
harvested, 900 acres less than the preceeding year. The 
value of the crop was $42. 5 million, up one percent from 
1976. 

The average yield in 1977 was a record 206 cwt. 
per acre. The winter crop averaged 180 cwt. , well be- 
low the winter crop of 1976. The subfreezing tempera- 
tures on the morning of January 20 caused heavy damage 
to the late planted winter acreage, reducing the overall 
yield of the winter crop. The spring potato acreage grown 
in the Hastings area averaged a record yield of 220 cwt. 
per acre and produced the largest crop since 1969. The 
high yield in this area accounted for the record yield in 
the State. Spring potatoes grown in other areas of the 
State averaged 185 cwt. per acre. 

The 1977 season average price of $6.84 per cwt. 
was 18 cents above the average in 1976, but below the re- 



cordprice of $7.72 received in 1974. Very low prices at 
the end of the spring season kept the season average price 
down. 

The winter crop in South Florida is mostly of the 
"red-skinned" varieties which are sold primarily for table 
stock. The spring "white skinned" varieties grown in the 
Hastings area are used mostly in making chips . However, 
more "reds" are being grown for the table stock trade than 
in previous years. 

The winter potato crop was off to a good start in 
early Januar}'. The hard freeze on the morning of January 
20, damaged plantings and delayed digging. Harvest of 
the winter crop was not complete until late May. Early 
plantings were not hurt by the freeze, but yields were re- 
duced on the late plantings. The spring crop at Hastings 
was not affected by the freeze. Plantings were delayed 
temporarily but completed on time. Digging, underway 
by early April, progressed rapidly to the May peak and 
was completed by the last week of June. Nearly 60 per- 
cent of the crop was shipped in May. 



RADISHES 
1976-77 



In 1976-77, radish plantings amounted to 31,000 
acres compared with 29,200 planted the previous year. 
Acres harvested totaled 27,300 compared with 25,700 in 
1975-76. Yields per acre averaged 291 cartons compared 
with 293 cartons the previous season. The crop was 
valued at $16.3 million compared with $15. 8 million 
a year earlier. The average f . o. b. price was $2. 06 per 
carton, down 4 cents from the previous year. 



A good supply of both red and white redishes were 



available from Zellwood, Lake Placid and the Everglades 
from October through May with a light volume going into 
June. The fall peak harvest occurred in November while 
the spring peak occurred in March and early April. The 
January 18-20 freeze caused considerable damage to rad- 
ishes and many had to be replanted. Seeding of the 1976-77 
crop was underway in the Everglades and north central 
areas in early September. Harvest was underway in early 
October and became quite active in mid-November. Sup- 
plemental supplies were available from Lake Placid and 
Sarasota during the year. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1976-77 



Spinach statistics have not been published separ- 
ately for Florida since the 1973 season in order to avoid 
disclosure of individual operations. However, data for 
these seasons have been included in "Other Vegetables" 
in the overall summary table. Also, data for historical 



years are published in order to show the relative impor- 
tance of this crop. Yield per acre was below a year 
earlier because of the January cold damage. Most of the 
crop is grown in north central and north areas. 



8 



SQUASH 
1976-77 



Florida's production of squash during the 1976-77 
season, at 1.9 million bushels, is a record high. Har- 
vested acreage totaling 12,000 acres, increased 5 percent 
from the previous year. The yield at 158 bushelsper acre 
was up 4 bushels from the previous year. 

The average f. o.b. price at $5.89 per bushel was 
down 64 cents from the all-time high of last season. The 
increase in production was not enough to offset the lower 
f. o.b. price resulting in a lower value. Total f„o.b. cash 
receipts amounted to about $11. 2 million. Prices were 
generally favor able October through March, before taper- 
ing off in the spring. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. 
Dade County with 29 percent of the state's harvested acre- 
age in 1976-77, produces yellow crookneck almost ex- 
clusively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a major 
producing area, is also an important market for squash 



grown in other areas of the state. This is especially true 
when local supplies reach low levels during the winter 
months. The southwest produces a continuous supply of 
most types. Central, north, and west Florida provide a 
good volume of most types during the fall and spring sea- 
sons. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida 
that is shipped every month of the year, although shipments 
during the summer are usually light and confined mostly to 
local markets. The 1976-77 season got off to a fair to 
good start as rains caused only minor problems. Market- 
ings increased to a fall peak in November and early De- 
cember, before showing a seasonal dip during the winter 
months. Cold winds in early January caused light to mod- 
erate foliage burn. The January 18-20 freeze destroyed 
all acreage that was out of the ground. Recent plantings 
began to emerge and harvest was underway in about 45 
days. Weather was generally favorable during the spring 
quarter, and production was heavy. Peak marketings for 
the 1976-77 season occurred in April. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1976-77 



Florida strawberry growers produced 2.1 million 
flats of berries during the 1976-77 season, up 4 percent 
from the previous year. Harvested acreage totaling 1, 500 
acres, increased 7 percent, and more than offset a de- 
crease in yield. The average f. o. b. return per flat was 
$4.21, down 12 cents from the previous season's average. 
The total value of the crop was a record $9. million, 1 
percent above the previous high established a year earlier. 

Laying of plastic and other field work were in full 
swing by early October in the Hillsborough and Dade County 
areas . Transplanting began by mid -October and was com- 



pleted by late November. Light harvest was underway by 
mid-December in Dade County and by late December in 
the Plant City area. Early harvested berries were pri- 
marily for local use and roadside stands „ Light shipments 
began in late January and reached a peak in March. Most 
of the commercial harvest was completed by late April 
and growers opened fields to the public for U-Pic opera- 
tions. The crop was damaged considerably by the January 
freeze. Growers using irrigation water or sprinklers had 
less crop loss than those who did not use these systems. 
Fruit size and quality were mostly good. Warm weather 
in February and March hastened maturity and resulted in 
heavy production during the peak season.

TOMATOES 
1976-77 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
and processing utilization decreased from last season. 
The $155. million was 5 percent below the previous sea- 
son's record value. The main factor contributing to the 
decrease was the freeze last January 18-20 which destroy- 
ed much of the winter crop. 

Total production of 25. 5 million 30-pound carton 
equivalents was 17 percent below the previous season. 
The fresh market channel utilized 95 percent of the pro- 
duction and the remaining 5 percent was for processing. 
The Palmetto-Ruskin area accounted for 46. 5 percent of 
the production; Dade Count}', 14.0 percent; the southwest, 
25. 9percent andthe Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 10. 5 per- 
cent. The remainder of the production was in the west, 
north, and north central areas. 

The state average yield, at 712 (30-pound) cartons 
per acre, was down 53 cartons from the previous season. 
This decrease was due to the major freeze damage in 
January. Dade County supplies the bulk of winter toma- 
toes. Fall shipments peaked in December, which account- 
ed for 19. 5 percent of the season's market sales. Spring 
production reached apeakin May, which amounted to 37.4 



percent of the season's total. Tomatoes are usually har- 
vested continuously from late October to mid-June. 

The Palmetto-Ruskin area continued to be the 
acreage leader, with 13, 990 acres harvested. The south- 
west ranked second, harvesting?, 330 acres. Dade County 
harvested 7, 815 acres, andthe Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 
3,765 acres. There were 1,100 acres harvested in the 
north, north central, and west areas. This was more 
than double last year's acreage harvested for these three 
areas. Most of this new acreage was in Gadsden County. 

Seeding and transplanting were underway in all 
areas in August. Rains in late September delayed plant- 
ings and damaged young seedlings in low areas. Damage 
was minimal. Mostly favorable weather prevailed 
throughout the remainder of the fall season. Much of the 
winter crop was destroyed by the major freeze last Jan- 
uary 18-20. Growers salvaged as much mature fruit as 
possible. Weather conditions were generally favorable 
for the spring season, although there was some light fruit 
scarring in mid to late April. In mid-May, leaf miners 
and locally heavy showers contributed to the rapid decline 
in plant condition in the Palmetto-Ruskin area. 



WATERMELONS 
1976-77 



Watermelon plantings during the 1977 season 
totaled 65,000 acres, the same as planted in 1976. Of 
this total, 51, 000 acres were harvested, nearly 7 percent 
less than the year before. The crop of 8. 9 million hun- 
dredweight was down by 10 percent from 1976. The 
average yield for the state was 175 cwt. , down slightly 
from ayear ago. The yields varied considerably over the 
State with the western counties averaging only 100 cwt. 
per acre and the southern counties averaging 212 cwt. per 
acre. 

The value of the crop totaled $26. 5 million, about 
two percent more than the previous season but 25 percent 
less than the record $35.2 million received for the 1975 
crop. The average price received by growers was nearly 
3 cents per pound compared with 2. 6 cents in 1976. 

The watermelon season usually begins in the Ft. 
Myers -Immokalee area in late March and early April, 
depending on weather conditions. The season progresses 
into the central growing area during May while the north- 
ern part of the state provides the heavy June volume. 
Harvest begins during June in the west or Panhandle and 
continues into July. 

Seeding was underway in the Immokalee area by 
mid-December. Early plantings were up to good stands 



but were killed by the sub-freezing temperatures on the 
morning of January 18. Extensive replanting was neces- 
sary where the crop was up or just emerging. The first 
melons did not move from this area until May. 

Planting was active in the north and west by mid- 
March. Extremely dry weather slowed seed germination 
and plant development. The drought caused heavy aban- 
donment of acreage both in the north and west. 

Harvest was underway by late May in the north. 
Volume increased rapidly and reached the peak by mid- 
June. Size and quality of melons were variable. Melons 
from irrigated fields were of good size and quality. Those 
from non-irrigated fields were mostly too small for the 
trade, however some entire fields were abandoned. The 
price remained low during most of June because of the 
heavy volume and the large number of small melons. 

The west was hit the hardest by dry weather. 
More than half of the crop in the area was completely 
abandoned due to the extremely dry conditions. Average 
yield was onlj 7 100 cwt. per acre and would have been lower 
without irrigation. Many fields were picked only once. 
Fair supplies continued into July but declined sharply the 
last half of the month when the season ended.

OTHER CROPS 
1976-77 



Cantaloups are grown primarily in the southwest 
and north central areas of Florida. A considerable pro- 
portion of the production is sold through local markets. 
The peak harvest period is May and June. Harvest begins 
in the southwest and moves northward as the season pro- 
gresses. 

Acreage remains at a relatively low level. How- 
ever, researchers are working to develop several new 
varieties that will be adapted to Florida' s soil and climate. 
There appears to be some promise that acreage may ex- 
perience an upward turn in the future. 

Cauliflower is available from mid- January into 
April. Supplies are grown mostly in theRuskm and Zell- 
wood areas. Light supplies are grown in the north. There 
has been a renewed interest in cauliflower production in 
the Zellwood area recently. 

Sub-tropical vegetable production declined during 
the year. The major freeze on January 20 destroyed some 
acreage in Dade County where most of the sub-tropical 
vegetables are grown. Commercial production began in 
the early 60' s. Sub-tropical vegetables is a colloquial ex- 
pression applied to certain vegetables eaten primarily by 
those of Latin American and Caribbean origin. The most 
common name for each crop followed by its scientific name 
is listed below. Other common terms for the various 
vegetables are shown in parenthesis. The crops consist 
primarily of boniatos-ipomea batatos (sweet potato); 
calabaza -cucurbita (pumpkin) ; malanga-x anthosoma 
sagitaefolium (dasheen, yautias) and yuca-monihot es- 
culenta (sweet cassava). Miami is an important point of 
consumption for the Floridaproduction. Also, a consider- 
able amount is shipped to Tampa, New York City and 
Philadelphia. 

Collard. turnip , mustard and other greens are 
grown for both fresh market and processing markets. 
These crops are grown throughout the state and centered 



around the large population centers and in the muck soils 
of the Everglades and Zellwood areas. Good volume is 
available from November through May with the peak ship- 
ment period occurring January through March. There 
was an increased interest in the cold hardy greens after 
the January freeze. Shipments totaled 431 carlot equiva- 
lents compared with 213 recorded for a year earlier. 

Okra i s grown in many areas of the state during the 
warm seasons of the year. However, Dade County pro- 
duces okra most of the year for local uses as well as for 
shipment to out-of-state markets. Good volume occurrs 
October through June with May and June being the peak 
months. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central area. Supplies are marketed primarily at local 
markets. Supplies of dry onions have been light but acre- 
age is expected to expand this year. 

Parsley is available in both the curly and plain 
types. The bulk of the commercial supplies that are 
shipped to other states are produced in the Everglades and 
Zellwood areas. Light supplies sold for local use are 
available from the Sarasota and Lake Placid areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the north- 
west, west central and the Everglades areas of Florida. 
Dade County also produces a good volume. Light supplies 
are available from September through December. Heavy 
movement occurrs during the April through June period. 
A high percentage of the crop goes for processing or is 
sold through local markets. 

Watercress is available year round. The major 
source of supply is Oviedo. M o s t of the production is 
shipped to northern and eastern m ar kets in the United 
States. A small volume is sold through State Farmers 
Markets.
